Biography

I decided to become a pediatrician at six years of age because I was enamored by how involved my own pediatrician became with my family when my younger brother took ill.

At our practice, my colleagues and I recognize that each child and family have unique needs. As such, we make a special effort to seek parental input at each office visit.

I spend my spare time mentoring young adults and providing school and career guidance. In addition, I enjoy playing golf, spending time with my two adult children and traveling with my wife.
